Musical Instrument Shops and DJ Gear
  • hogans on the highstreet
  • The long standing Hogan's music which has a good selection of instruments, for DJ gear round the corner is DJ TEC
  • Guitars: Hogans, Strings: Philip Brown. Dawsons in Reading is pretty good all-round for starter instruments.
  • If you want a guitar, Hogans is great, but they've stopped doing classical instruments really. If you've got the time, Dawsons in Reading is good too, they still sell lots of classical instruments, but don't have a huge selection of string instruments. If you're looking for high-quality string instruments, Philip Brown in Newbury sells a good selection of violins, violas and celli, but you have to be prepared to spend a fair bit. Definately worth it though.

  • Hogan's Music
  • hogans hogans hogans .wot no one heard of esp just down the road 'ESP' started off as a disco shop selling decks to people with wide lappels but its developed to a reasonable equipment shop.doesnt sell instrements but has a good range of stuff like mics,monitor speekers, guitar & bass combo's leads and DJ stuff like decks and mixers.
  • Hogan's Music stocks a wide range of guitars and equipment, alongside classical instruments. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and the prices are realistic (if not as cheap as online). Big Boss Man & Skooby's Nasser used to work there, back in the day...
  • Hogans music, quite a little shop, gets cramped when theres 4 customers.
  • Hogans Music ESP
  • hogans in craven rd is resonable. sells sheet music &guitars rather than techno wizardry but worth a look
  • Hogan. Owners are friendly, but the repairs constitute the shiftiest workmanship I've ever come across. Some good deals on secondhand stuff though. Nice guitars too.
